A conditional statement is a "if-then" statement, in which it has two parts: the condition and its consequence. The part consequence describes the result of the condition. The conditional sentences can be a statement, a question, or a command.
In ASL sign language, conditional statements are usually accompanied by: 1) raised eyebrows during the condition or at the beginning of the condition; and 2) The condition may be preceded by the ASL term suppose or if.
/\If rain/\, ix-me not go-to camp.
If it rains, I will not go to the camp.
The form of this conditional sentence is a statement. The consequence not go-to camp is the result of the condition rain.
